NEW COACH: Jay Gruden will leave the Bengals Photo: Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jay Gruden has agreed to become the head coach of the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins confirmed Thursday that Gruden has accepted the job and will be introduced at an afternoon news conference.

The 46-year-old Gruden has spent the last three seasons as the offensive coordinator of the Cincinnati Bengals, where he helped develop Andy Dalton. Now he’ll have the task of working with another young franchise quarterback, Robert Griffin III.

Gruden, the brother of former NFL head coach Jon Gruden, had drawn interest from at least three other teams seeking to fill a head coaching vacancy. He interviewed with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday.

Gruden replaces Mike Shanahan, who was fired last week after a 3-13 season.
